Island Palm Communities

April, 2015

15-April-Island-Palm-01An award-winning development backed by a team dedicated to building community among the more than 7,400 service members that call Island Palm Communities their home, there’s no doubt the company is doing it right when it comes to taking care of its residents.  Now recognized as a 2015 Hawaii Best Places to Work, Island Palm Communities can proudly say it’s doing it right when it comes to taking care of its employees.

“Island Palm Communities has been around for 10 years, and it’s the Army’s largest privatized residential community with just under 8,000 homes,” says Pete Sims, Regional Project Director for Island Palm Communities. “We have a very talented and dedicated staff that takes care of our homes, but more importantly, the families who reside in them.”  The company provides asset, development and property management services to service members living on Army installations on Oahu.  Its property operation is run by more than 300 employees that manage marketing and leasing, community management, maintenance and renovations.

So what makes Island Palms Communities such a great place to work? Its sense of community among its staff is one of many reasons.

“I have a great team that supports each other in every way possible,” says Tom Adams, Director of Property Management. “Our staff does a tremendous job keeping everything going in the right direction, and they’re always focused on the mission to enhance efficiencies and do things better for those defending our freedom.”

Island Palm Communities offers a comprehensive and generous benefits package that includes health care with wellness options, matching 401k, and educational assistance, and training and career advancement opportunities.

Supporting not just our nation’s military members and their families, but its own employees, Island Palm Communities continues to ensure that “communities” is the most important part of their name.

Island Palm Communities parent company, Lend Lease, has more than 40,000 homes in its military housing portfolio across the U.S.
